" What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?" - Indeed! Curating content is a pathway to cultivating these skills --and transferring ownership of learning to the student. Excellent post by Leslie Madsen-Brooks.
